Broighter Burger

Difficulty easy
Preparation Time (mins) 10
Cooking Time (mins) 10
Servings 6
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 onion, finely chopped and fried
  • 500g quality minced beef
  • 1 heaped tsp Dijon mustard, (optional)
  • 2 tbsp of soy sauce
  • 1 large free-range egg
  • Optional (but really tasty) ½ cup of grated cheddar
  • Broighter Gold Original Rapeseed Oil
  • 1 lettuce (cos, round or baby gem, whichever you prefer)
  • 3 ripe tomatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • Extra cheese of your choice (brie, cheddar, smoked, blue, whatever takes your fancy!)

Main Instructions
  1. Make or buy the breadcrumbs then tip into a large bowl.
  2. Add a tbsp of Broighter Gold Original Rapeseed Oil to a frying pan and fry off your onions on a low heat for approx. 5-10 mins (the longer you cook them the more caramelised they will become adding sweetness)
  3. Add the onions, mustard, soy sauce, egg, grated cheddar and the minced beef to the bowl along with a little seasoning.
  4. With clean hands, scrunch and mix everything up well. Divide into 6 and pat and mould each piece into a roundish shape, roughly 2cm thick.
  5. Place the burgers onto a plate, drizzle with some rapeseed oil, then cover and place in the fridge until needed – this will help to firm them up.
  6. To cook the burgers, preheat a large griddle, frying pan or the BBQ, for 4 minutes on a high heat, then turn the heat down to medium.
  7. Place the burgers on the griddle, pan or BBQ, then use a spatula to lightly press them down, making sure the burger is in full contact with the pan.
  8. Cook the burgers for 3 or 4 minutes on each side, depending on how you like them.
  9. Meanwhile, wash and dry a few small lettuce leaves, slice the tomatoes, peel and finely slice the red onion, then slice the gherkins lengthways as finely as you can.
  10. Place all the toppings, and the cheese on a platter and put in the middle of the table with plates, cutlery, ketchup and drinks.
  11. Once cooked, remove the burgers to a plate, halve the burger buns (lightly toasted) and serve up with side salad and french dressing
